25-30cm of fresh snow I would say earlier this morning in the village - and more since then and more on the top of the mountain.... I am hearing about 40cm and indeed some of the official snow depth numbers have jumped by 40cm or so this morning.

Yes, things are looking good this morning - poor visibility aside! It feels like the season has at last got underway in some style. With the Chuo Ropeway starting to move again tomorrow, it will be a good Christmas.

More parts of the resort are now open and I would guess if this continues today and tomorrow then we should really be seeing the whole mountain open this weekend. Right now the Uwanodai area has the least accummulated snowfall and seems to not be getting going as yet.

It's a windy and cold feeling -4 degrees in the village at the moment so not crazy cold for Zao but looks like tomorrow will be colder.

Snowmen lined up on the forecast for the coming 6 days at least, so... welcome to the season!
